Proposals for the Davis 100 Projects for Peace are now being accepted by the University of Oklahoma.

The deadline for submission is February 4, 2015.

The Davis United World College Scholars is offering 100- $10,000 awards to any individual or group of undergraduate students at participating universities to design and implement a project to promote peace.

Davis 100 Projects for Peace is an invitation to undergraduate students to design grassroots projects to be implemented during the summer of 2014. The objective is to encourage and support today’s motivated youth to create and try their own ideas for building peace.

The projects judged to be the most promising and attainable will be funded at $10,000 each.  An OU student has received one of the $10,000 awards in every year the university has participated in the Davis Projects for Peace program.

No specific guidelines are offered, so the possibilities are endless. It is up to students to define what a “project for peace” might be. The overall program of 100 projects is global in scope and impact, and projects may be undertaken anywhere around the world.

Any undergraduate students currently enrolled at OU are eligible. Seniors who will complete their projects in the summer after graduation may also apply.  Groups of students from the same campus may submit proposals.

To be considered, a student or group of students must prepare a two-page written statement that describes the project (who, what, where, how) including expected outcomes and prospects for future impact (do not exceed two pages) as well as a budget (one separate page).

Proposals should include pre-approval of all involved parties and organizations involved in the project. The two-page proposal and one page budget should be submitted electronically to the OU program sponors as outlined below.  If the budget exceeds $10,000, the proposal must identify the sources of funding to cover the additional costs.

Communication between students writing proposals and the Davis UWC Scholars office is prohibited.
